New Delhi, Sep 17 (IANS) Actress Lily Collins has topped the Most Dangerous Cyber Celebrity of 2013 list.

The list is part of an annual research conducted by security system McAfee.

Collins, who has featured in movies like "Mirror Mirror", "The Abduction" and "The Blind Side", has replaced British actress Emma Watson for the title.

As per the research, fans, who conduct online search for 'Lily Collins and free downloads', 'Lily Collins and nude pictures', 'Lily Collins and fakes' and 'Lily Collins and free app downloads', are at risk of running into online threats designed to steal personal information, such as email addresses and passwords.

Clicking on these risky sites and downloading files such as pictures and videos expose surfers to a larger risk of downloading viruses and malware.

"Today's consumers often are completely unaware of security risks when searching for celebrity and entertainment news, images and videos online, sacrificing safety for immediacy," said Paula Greve, director of web security research at McAfee.

"Cyber criminals prey on consumers' addiction to breaking news and leverage this behaviour to lead them to unsafe sites that can severely infect their computers and devices and steal personal data," Greve added.

The research further revealed that downloads related to Collins yield more than 14.5 percent chance of landing on a website that has tested positive for online threats, such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses and other malware.

Lily Collins was followed by singer Avril Lavigne in the list of most dangerous celebrities, with Jon Hamm as the only male celebrity to feature in the list.

The complete list is as follows:

1. Lily Collins

2. Avril Lavigne

3. Sandra Bullock

4. Kathy Griffin

5. Zoe Saldana

6. Katy Perry

7. Britney Spears

8. Jon Hamm
